hurricane sandy that is hitting us now. better be prepared as we learned from hurricane katrina. not if you listen to the ryan-romney budget. we give them every benefit of the doubt on discretionary spending for the government. they don't specify, of course, because they're cowards. they don't say i'm going to cut this program this program this program. let's assume they do not cut fema any more than they would cut any other program. what would the fema budget under the ryan plan? well, it would be about $3.9 billion. let me did oh some quick math for you guys. that is $10 billion less from $13.5 billion to $4 billion. well, ryan is an extremist. that's not fair to look at his. let's look at romney's budget proposals stretching through 2015. what would he cut it down to? less $1.8 billion. it's even worse than ryan's budget. so if you are interested in getting a proper response through fema to these storms apparently you're not going to get one if ryan and romney get their wishes and desires and cut the hell out of our budget. this is a good time to be doing that. is that a smart move? and
that katrina because they spent it on massage parlors and everything you can think of in addition to what was necessary. >> jennifer: that's iowa tea party congressman and crazytown resident steve king. he's one of 11 congressional members who days after hurricane katrina voted against $51.8 billion in relief spending in louisiana and mississippi. and now, just days after hurricane sandy he obviously has not changed his tune. and it is that kind of radical radical/insane thinking that's gotten him into his tightest re-election race yet. the latest ppp poll has him running three points ahead of his democratic opponent, christie vilsack. 48% to 45% in iowa. congressman king is not alone. several of his fellow representatives from tea party crazytown are in the political fights of their lives as well. begin with minnesota congresswoman michele bachmann. she's off the charts in name recognition. she raised $18 million more than her democratic opponent jim graves. her district has an 8% republican registration edge but still sh
hurricane katrina they spent it on gucci bags and massage parlors and everything you can think of in addition to what was necessary. shopping is the key concern for the literally millions of people affected by the storm. what could be worse for states like new jersey than the congressional vote on how fema should spend its money? king was one of 11 members to vote against providing additional disaster relief to the victims of hurricane katrina back in 2005. >>> on a more positive note, chris christie's wish comes true. it's no secret he's a fan of bruce springsteen. over the years springsteen has not returned the love until last night. he reached out to the victims of hurricane sandy and then some. listen to this. we're a band that can't separate from the jersey shore. we'll send this out to all the people working down there, the police officers, the firemen, and also to the governor who has done such a hard job this past week. well, there you have it. the romance, the bromance, isn't as one-sided anymore. >>> also, what part of the presidential election got this 4-year-old col
's sandy or katrina, do you believe in government or do you not believe in government. it can effect policies. you can have disastrous vault as aresultsor good results. >> it's so much fake rhetoric that they say. they say we don't need the federal government. but they don't have the money. if it's not there how does your beloved private sector have the money? >> what fox wants is the idea that we're going to see moments in sandy with white people that are reminiscent of katrina with black people. again, the subtle inference when white people needed help, he showed no interest. >> cenk: here's the difference. there's no difference. to reach out and hit them across the face in several bill o'reilly clips. >> blacks can gain success and prosperity by voting out obama and the democrats and voting in the republican. >> cenk: i just don't think that's going to work. then later should we start thinking about floodgates? is climate change so serious we should design around it. >> a harbor pivoting up when needed to block the one time it's okay for you to miss my show is if that's the only t
not to have prepared people properly for this and it becomes another mini katrina situation, it could be literally an election wrecker for the president. conversely, if he handles this very well and it is a huge storm, that can win him the election. it can be politically very important. >> let's be clear. the record is obvious to me, the president has -- we saw what happened in the past in katrina. the president has been very aggressive putting his own boots on the ground. he came through the state of new jersey when we had flooding and the like. so this president to me, he's already proven that point and i know, i know from my work in preparing today, that the federal government is ready for this challenge and they will meet it head-on and deal with the crisis and the aftermath. and i know it's a political issue but i really want to reaffirm to people because the biggest mistakes i've seen often in these storms, especially in the obama administration, has not necessarily been the federal response, it's been from individuals not taking the necessary steps to be ready. and then in the
. and but the government has an obligation, i think to rebuild new orleans and katrina and to rebuild new jersey, do they not? >> they do not. they have an obligation to get out of the way so you can rebuild if you want and provide roads and infrastructure. >> who is going to do that though? >> free people who choose to do that. >> bill: so a storm or earthquake or tornado rips apart a town and you say the government shouldn't help out at all? >> the government should keep the peace, make sure there is no looting. >> no rebuilding money at all? >>. no. >> who is going to do that? >> free private individuals who have the money, who bought private insurance. who want to take the risk. >> you know, there is a lot of different circumstances of people who rent, people who do. this you say no relief at all? >> no relief at all. charities do it better. fema is incompetent. fema -- >> bill: new orleans might not exist today under your -- it might not be there. >> so be it. >> john stossel, everybody. you can write him. hard guy. plenty more as the factor moves along this evening. bunch of entries make last
katrina where it was failures on the part of the federal government's response. you don't have that negative aspect. you have chris christie, the most visible republican in the country. certainly according to the media one of the better liked ones. he's out there using his platform to vouch for the leadership of the democratic president. i think that makes a powerful statement to people. i think having bloomberg weigh in makes a pretty strong statement to people as well. and i think just -- it's tough to quantify this. i think it's impossible to quantify this. to me it creates this noise that's sort of in the air, in the media air, and sort of in the conversational air in this country. it creates noise that i think takes wavering voters who maybe were soft obama supporters or soft romney supporters, i could see it moving them, you know, a small share of people, but i could see it moving people toward obama making them more comfortable with the idea of re-electing him. if it's a 1% or something, small, but it's big in the context of this election. >> in the context of endorsemen
of the indelible images of government failure after katrina. that's what people are reminded of. that's when you had a president and a federal government that did not work, did not come to the aid of people. so you don't have to talk about the bush legacy. you don't have to draw the comparison because it's right there in people's heads. in the case of our dear friend on radio, what's left of his head is xleerly exploding. >> ideologue is the kindest thing said about rush limbaugh on my show. richard wolffe always keeps it classy. richard wolff sxechlt chryst'll ball, thank you both very much for joining us tonight. coming up, mitt romney actually tells the crowd in ohio that he knows all about hurricane cleanup because, this is absolutely true, this is what he told them, he once had to help clean up the football field after a football game when he was in high school. seriously. that's his experience with cleanup. and that's in the "rewrite." and with the election just six days away, will voters across the northeast be able to actually vote on election day? will the hurricane problem still be goi
. >> he would have said more but he was still responding to katrina. >> you will be rescued by private sector volunteers like paul ryan who will come to your devastated town and wash your already clean pots. >> bell go trick-or-treating on the same route i went on when i was a little guy. >> i usually put a condom over my head and go out as a -- never mind. >> he's not going to get any of your votes. >> far left is threatening violence if president obama loses the election. >> we voted him off the island. >> five more days. >> together we will renew those bonds and reaffirm that spirit that makes the united states of america the greatest nation on earth. >>> let's get right to our panel now, krystal ball is my colleague and the co-hass host of "the cycle." jimy williams joining us from washington. we have live pictures of president obama speaking in northern new jersey. isn't this what a disaster like this required, a state governor to communicate and then cooperate with the president of the united states? >> it's absolutely what's required, and i think it is what americans want from t
of this from the history of the chicago fire, san francisco earthquake to katrina, when you take the underpinnings of society and strip it bare, when you take out the things that are the linchpin of how people interact and cooperate with each other, that is when you reduce the power relations to the most raw. nothing more political than the moments of disaster because it lays bare who has power in a society and who doesn't. >> just the fact, also one of the things that government does, one of the things government must do, is help protect us from the things we can't protect ourselves from. when we have a disaster, fire, a hurricane, you have to ask the question is government doing all it can do to insulate us from this and if government or people out there are denying climate change and some of these things may be related to that, that's a pretty big dereliction of duty. >> rick perry did pray for rain during fires that burned in texas through most of the year. we didn't get to talk about the president and what he might do if he's re-elected. >> people should watch "up" tomorrow.
. on the ground level. >> he wants to have a katrina before he's even in office. >> pretty much. >> see how much better i am than george bush. i'm not even president yet. ha ha, ha, ha. >> stephanie: exactly. you know all of the republican governors will be immediately begging for money. i love chris christie. >> yeah. >> stephanie: what did he say? he's so come for thing in times of need. he's like don't be stupid. >> he gave the president kudos. he said the president -- you know if the president didn't cancel his campaign activities, it would have been a huge problem. >> stephanie: does this give the president an opportunity to act presidential? he is presidential! it doesn't give him an opportunity to act presidential like george bush. let's do a photo op ten days after the storm with my -- i'm flying over it and checking out the damage. >> it shows we're workin' hard. it is hard work. >> stephanie: and workin' hard in addition. dana in maryland, you're on "the stephanie miller show." hi dana. >> caller: good m
